Support Your Traveling Students with the Tap of a Button

As your partners in safety, LiveSafe is here to support your efforts to keep your students, faculty, and staff safe — both on campus and off. 

When students and staff are away from the safe confines of your campus, whether for a study abroad program or on Spring Break, help them feel safe in an unfamiliar place. This month’s Outreach Toolkit features an emergency contact card and traveling tips you can distribute to your faculty and student body to help them stay connected when traveling for holiday vacations, field trips, or offsite educational programs.


LiveSafe’s toolkits offer customizable and out-of-the-box materials that help support your outreach efforts. Below you’ll find links to materials that point travelers in the right direction for getting help and reporting emergencies.

Tips for Configuration

LiveSafe’s “Resources” section provides quick access to both emergency and non-emergency contact information. Materials in this section are dispensed in a variety of file formats, including PDFs, text and HTML files, URLs, images, and even through interactive capabilities, such as plotting geographic locations on the app’s Safety Map. 

The good news is that this information is stored locally on the user’s device, so even if your students, faculty, and staff don’t have cell service or WiFi available, they still have access to this important content when they need it most. 

Contact your Account Manager to learn more about how your campus can support your traveling community members by providing them with resources directly in the LiveSafe app.

Tips for Engagement

While resources in this month’s Outreach Toolkit can be shared with your community at any point during the year, it is especially important to distribute them before scheduled travels. Other pre-travel tips include:

  1. Work with residence hall advisors and your Study Abroad/Alternative Spring Break offices to host “safety sessions” with the students participating in the programs.  
  2. Urge your campus partners to post additional information on their websites about the available tools for staying safe as it pertains to their role on campus.
